Last night ended what many consider to be a lost year, consisting of surprise election victories and celebrity deaths. That being said, Avicii has just given us something great to look forward to with an Instagram announcement.

Avicii ushered us into 2017 with the brilliant pledge that he would spend the year working on what is the ‘best damn album of my career,’ in his words. Having confirmed last week that he was expecting to have an album out in the new year, alongside news of parting with longtime manager Ash Pournouri, Avicii fans are sure to have something to look forward to for the rest of the long year ahead of us!
